Author Notes: Confession! This is a family recipe from a co-worker, but I've adopted it into my family and we make it every summer when the zucchini are big and ripe in the garden. My co-worker says her family calls it "brake" because it's a cross between bread and cake - a great dense consistency with a sweet bite. I'm calling it a dessert - perhaps an icing is in order?! It's terribly easy to put together. Just plan to bake in the morning or late at night during the summer - this recipe calls for a 350 degree oven for an hour.
